Hello @Cleberson

Please do the following for me.

NOTE: Today is Christmas day and I will be away with family most of the day. Will try to reply tomorrow if possible.

 

 

Please do the following so that we can get started and see what's going on.


The Farbar Recovery Scan Tool is a free Windows utility designed to create troubleshooting logs for your computer. These logs help our Support team to identify and resolve issues with your computer.

There are two versions of the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool available for download: 32-bit and 64-bit.
To find which operating system is installed on your computer, refer to Microsoft's article: 32-bit and 64-bit Windows: Frequently asked questions

  8. Disable any Antivirus software you have installed ONLY if it stops software we may use from working.

  9. When the scan completes, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool shows two messages:

  • Scan completed. FRST.txt is saved in the same directory FRST is located.

While I'm away you can also try the following.

 

 

Please try the following. Open an Elevated Admin command prompt and copy / paste the following and press the Enter key. You should get a success message.

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters" /v "DisabledComponents" /t REG_DWORD /d 32 /f

Then restart the computer and try activating the program again.

This will set the IP preference to use IPV4 instead of IPV6 as recommended by Microsoft without actually disabling IPV6

 

Let me know if that helps correct the issue for you.

In case you still need the link, here is the offline installer

MB4 Offline Installer

Thank you

Thank you, glad to hear that worked. @Cleberson

A few other items you may want to review.

 

Unless  you have very specific code that only runs on this very old version I would recommend that you uninstall it.

Java SE Development Kit 8 Update 172

As you can see this is from 2018

The Dev Kit is now up to version 17 and can be downloaded from here if needed.

https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/downloads/

Make sure to read developer notes though if you do use the product as the licensing has changed in the past few years.

 

 

You have Windows Search setup to include a location it can no longer find. Please look at correcting and rebuilding the Window Search index.

Error: (12/25/2021 03:34:49 PM) (Source: Windows Search Service) (EventID: 1019) (User: )

You have a fault from CCleaner in the Event Logs but the program does not show as installed. Note: most computer experts no longer recommend using this product. You may want to consider uninstalling.

You appear to be having some type on networking issue you should review.

System errors:
=============
Error: (12/25/2021 03:39:01 PM) (Source: NetBT) (EventID: 4311) (User: )
Description: Initialization failed because the driver device could not be created.
Use the string "025041000001" to identify the interface for which initialization
failed. It represents the MAC address of the failed interface or the
Globally Unique Interface Identifier (GUID) if NetBT was unable to
map from GUID to MAC address. If neither the MAC address nor the GUID were
available, the string represents a cluster device name.

 

 

Please open an Elevated Admin command prompt using CMD.EXE and run the following

SFC /SCANNOW

Then post back the results of that command

 

 

Happy Holidays
